How often should I have an endoscopy
I had one last year and found out I have a hiatal hernia and mild gastrtis.  No h ployri.  But I do have stomach pain and bloating every now and then.   Was told IBS.  But I want to be proactive about my health so it doesnt turn into something serious.  Is getting an endoscopy necessary every year.

I have atrophic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia, personal history of colorectal cancer.  My GI doctor checks me with endoscopy every 2 years.
